Murray's Family Enlists Help From Psychic Profiler
By Gary E. Lindsley
Maura Murray's family has enlisted the help of a nationally known psychic profiler to help them find her.
Murray, a 21-year-old University of Massachusetts at Amherst nursing student from Hanson, Mass., has not been seen since she was involved in a one-car accident in Haverhill, N.H. Feb. 9.
Carla Baron of Los Angeles, Calif., has come up with a theory about what happened to Murray the night her car failed to negotiate a sharp left-hand curve after driving by The Weathered Barn.
Baron, along with Maura's father, Fred, want to reserve some of the information so New Hampshire State Police can have a chance to act on it.
She believes Maura was picked up by someone passing through the area where the accident occurred.
"I believe she is no longer with us," Baron said.
She has told Maura's father she believes Maura met with foul play.
Baron, a psychic profiler who helped lead police to finding the body of a man who had committed suicide in a cornfield in the Midwest, has provided Fred Murray with a description of the person who picked her up as well as the type of vehicle.
She has also told him in what kind of an area Maura can be found.
"I have been in touch with Maura," Baron said.
Maura met with foul play the same night as the accident, she said.
What really concerns Murray, is what else Baron has told her. She has told him there is another woman who can be found near Maura who has fallen victim to the same person. And, Baron also told him there have been others.
Murray does not want too many details released right away to the public until the state police have had time to analyze the information and search possible locations.
Baron has been able to obtain somewhat of a description about the man as well as where she can possibly be found by talking twice with Maura's father via the telephone for a total of about 21/2 hours.
"It's called remote viewing," she said, referring to how she obtained the information about what happened to Maura by talking to her father.
Murray said he spoke with Lt. John Scarinza and others from New Hampshire State Police Troop F Friday.
"I gave them my theory that someone picked her up," he said.
He asked them, again, to bring in the FBI and make a direct appeal to the public for any information they may have in helping find his daughter.
"I asked him if he would accept help from a nationally known psychic," Murray said.
He said Scarinza mentioned they had been contacted by other psychics.
"They said they would accept help from a psychic," he said.
Murray is hoping state police and Baron talk soon.
Baron has appeared in episodes of "Psychic Detectives" on Court TV and will be seen in a segment of ABC's "Primetime" at 10 p.m. Thursday.
Anyone with information about Murray should contact New Hampshire State Police at 603-271-3636.
